Fall Play

2017 Fall Play Production –Writing a Will Can Be Murder by Eddie McPherson

Aging movie star Betty Crawford once led a glamorous life on the red carpet, surrounded by reporters, movie producers, and directors vying for her attention. Everyone wanted to rub elbows with her. But these days she lives alone with her maid, and the rest is only a memory… and a series of hysterical tongue-in-cheek flashbacks. Wouldn’t you know, as soon as Betty revises her will, suddenly everyone in her life, both past and present, just happens to show up for a “social call.” Betty ends up murdered in her living room, conked on the head with a heavy object. Curiously, (and hysterically), every visitor just happens to be holding a different type of heavy object… the potential murder weapon. When a library cop shows up to present a citation for a book that’s years overdue, he decides he’s practically law enforcement, so he puts the clues together to help solve the mystery of the murdered movie star. With fast paced dialogue and three sets of twins (each pair cleverly written to be played by the same actor), this murder mystery farce is full of fun and intrigue!
